Captured as the year changed from 2013 to 2014, the juxtaposition of the very still land against the circular movement of the stars in the sky around a central point (the pole star) creates a magnificent contrast to this image. Looking closely at the light coming from each of the stars we can see diffrent colours which are incredibly useful for their study. The diffrent colours tell us about what stage of life the stars are : hot blue stars are young whereas red stars are nearing the end of their lives.
